When asked "What's the best thing about West?", they said...

  • West Los Angeles made it possible for me to gain focus and achieve my goals and no that I can accomplish anything with their helpful staff and careful guidance I was able to complete tasks that one  point seemed impossible
  • The best thing for me has been my English professors. They made each class wonderful
  • The C2C is a family of students, Counselor and staff who support C2C Students and I could not have been so successful without them.
  • The film/tv stagecraft production program has given me the opportunity to start a new career where I can make enough money to support myself and my family.
  • Class Schedule and Evening Classes for working & single parent students.
  • Very welcoming environment and its always ready to serve students with what they need to become successful in life. West is the BEST place to start.
  • EOPS and Scholars Guardian were my right hand to the right path. thank you
  • The Political Science teachers helped encourage my interest in the subject.
  • I had previously attended 3 different colleges and I can honestly say that West Los Angeles College made me feel welcome from the first day and I was thankfully able to find some success.
